buses and in the city we're see ang increase of the use of shuttle buses both within san francisco and those that commute to outside of san francisco. the shuttle buses clearly provide a real benefit around decreasing the amount of trips that are taken by automobiles. often people who choose to go on shuttles, if they didn't have a shuttle as an option would be in a car driving by themselves. so we know there is really great benefits to the shuttle system. we know we're seeing a proliferation of them and we don't quite have a handle in the city how to manage our shuttle -- the private shuttle fleets in the city, especially as they relate to public space that we have around muni stops. so rather than not look at how we can prevent the wild west of the shuttles to become what is happening in san francisco, it's best that we look at how we can manage that. today i am requesting the city attorney to help us draft a permit process to regulate shuttles in san francisco and colleagues, i would be very interested in having input from your offices to help manage that legislation. and th

[ laughter ] >> on a day to day basis what we're doing here in san francisco is we are disenfranchising folks and limiting their ability for future employment. once you have a conviction for a non-violent drug-related crime, your chances of getting a future employment are essentially nil. there was a research study published recently in a san francisco newspaper, that showed the rate of drug convictions dropped, and the violent crime here in san francisco did not rise. essentially what we're saying is that there is no correlation between drug use and violent crime. so the whole notion that we have to go after these folks to go into their neighborhoods and essentially make had a police state of their neighborhoods is ridiculous, preposterous and anne ethical and moral fail

. thank you. >> thank you. >> yes parking here in san francisco is a major cash cow for local government. they raise close to $200 million in revenue from parking here and the variable meters in my opinion is just another gimmick. it parks close to $6 an hour to park at a meter on any given day it's ridiculous. i am opposed to the variable rate meters and would take the residential permit one step further and allow those people to be allowed to use the parking permits to park on meters in shopping areas so i would propose that i am definitely opposed to send meters and saturday meters. it's a deterrent to patronizing small business. >> okay. the resulting economy has resulted in internet base for short term rentals and many of the rentals are illegal and the hotel tax is not collected. should the city legalize some or all of the arrangements and collect a hotel tax and we will begin with you -- i will be glad to repeat the question. >> i honestly don't know how you would enforce a law like that. of course everyone should pay their fair share but i don't know how you could enforce that.

that will support low-income tenants in san francisco and promote fair and transparent government. there are a few amendments to the original legislation that i am introducing today. that were working ored on with the housing authority and the mare's office on housing and i will invite the representatives up to speak as well to the amendments, although i understand that they are sub [sta-pbts/]ive. so i don't know what that means in terms of process. with the legacy of redevelopment and the more recent predications in the stock of public housing as a result of the federal hope 6 program, my district in particular and other districts have experienced its share of permanent displacement of low-income tenants. this displacement has broken positive community bonds, destroyed tight-knit communitis and contributed to african-american out-migration. with this legislation, no longer will san francisco endorse or fund public housing rebuilds that displace residents outside of their communities or out of san francisco. this is the first step of many that this board of supervisors can take to demonstrate th
in san francisco. like most big cities it's citadel that we preserve our rental stock and protect it from being cannibalized for other uses. there is a market for hotels, corporate suites and condominiums and other uses and the answer is through an efficient production strategy that expands choices and notice through diminishing our rental stock. thank you supervisors for bringing this forward and preserving our rental stock. >> thank you. >> good afternoon, supervisors. jane, san francisco apartment association and i'm here to speak on behalf of the rental industry and the corporate housing providers. thank you supervisor chiu for opening your doors and taking our input in this participate piece of legislation. what i have discovered in working on this policy is that most of the people that i represent do not rent for less than 30 days and, in fact, they don't rent for less than 90 days. although i would like you to all take into consideration that providing 90-day/six-month housing is important in our city for people coming in, for cancer treatment at ucsf, children coming here for c
these technology companies, to start in san francisco, to grow, and tuesday. they also represent our future. i have often said that -- and i have been both a participant an observer and a relatively new mayor, but i will say this to all of you, too -- we have got to make sure that our city continues to be an investor- confident and an investment- friendly city. whether your investment is a family, whether it is a small business, or whether it is investing in someone else's business, no one is going to come to a city where the signal of the mayor with the board of supervisors for the lack of working together signals less than sure confidence that it is a good investment working with your city. that is what is attractive but sen francisco. i will continue making that very strong, and everything i do everyday will be to continue to create jobs in our city. thank you very much.

next question is how would you solve the homelessness problem in san francisco? and we will start with mr. garcia. >> my god, what an easy question. of course we're not going to solve it. the best we can do is try to minimize it and i think we are on the right track and we have a new homeless czar in pl dusty and i like the deal he's dealing with it and a way of dealing with chronic alcoholics and the protections that we have for homeless people are to protect society and not from the homeless people but to deal with that. it's 51-50 and i am sure some people know what that is and the police has the power to hold someone who is a threat to themselves or someone else for 72 hours. we need to enact laura's law and mr. dufty is working on that and finding housing for these individuals but not to keep going back to the economy but one solution is improve the economy so we can improve these people's lives. thank you. >> thank you. >> l the homeless problem it's very, very interesting because you know some cities don't -- i think one of the reasons we do have a problem is because of
to be partnering with the san francisco business times, the host of this very important discussion. the issues we face as business leaders and members of the community provide us with a unique opportunity in the coming years and many real challenges. it is vitally important that we stay connected and informed so that we may continue to build a vibrant bay area economy. as one of the region's largest employers and the largest integrated delivery system in the country, our reason for being is simply to improve health. we exist to provide high- quality, affordable health care services and to improve the health of our members and the communities we serve. in fact, we are proud to provide care and coverage to many of you in this room. i know that as business leaders, you are probably all concerned about the affordability and quality of health care as you assess and seek to understand the impact of health-care reform. be assured that kaiser permanente is committed to quality and affordability and that it is at the center of our mission as an organization. in addition to staying true to our mission and
's where i cut my jib in trying cases as an attorney in san francisco, so it's like coming home again. i've also been a resident of san francisco specifically in the marina for 42 years, so i am quite enthusiastic about this project. i have been a frequent user with my family of the big -- what we refer to as the big marina green, i've walked past the degaussing station, so i was one of the few people who understood what a degaussing station is, but it has been as pointed out, could certainly use quite an improvement and the idea that it is going to be run by a very responsible family operation is a real credit to park and rec for their selection process and we wholeheartedly, my family and i'm a member of the board of directors marina association as well as -- and the first class of the nert, so i've been active in the community for a great number of years and enthusiastically support your hopefully approving this particular project, and also the notification issue is sort of a red herring, as pointed out, it's been made very public for a couple of years and since ms. kelly sent out e-m
, for recycled water, san francisco has to come up with 25 million gallons of recycled water and currently there's puc of 2.5 to 3 million gallons a day, so i don't know how it's going to be, that's the bigger picture but when you start narrowing it down with the northlake they use in fresh water and separating out different lakes, that's kicked around a little bit. they also don't have a set plan, a puc for the reverse osmosis of the water that's coming out of the ground water. my problem with that is every time i go to the water type place, i have an issue with why aren't we drinking portable water, why don't we get the reverse osmosis and that's more in the public safety health and getting better water. if you want to buy water, black mountain makes such water, reverse osmosis and it takes out all that bacteria which causes in humans the productivity of plaque, i'm at that age, you want to keep it down a little bit. if we have to drink water, wouldn't you want some reverse osmosis water rather than everything being dumped back on to the lawns. thank you. >> thank you. >> is there any other pu

out to me. i want to thank the affordable housing alliance in addition, to the san francisco tenants union for their support. i should also mention that i have been convening a grouch stakeholders to address a separate set of challenges, associated with residents renting out their apartments while they are on vacation or on business. in the area that is known as sharable housing better business bureau i want to mention that that is separate from the legislation that we have today. my overall goal is that with that other piece of legislation is that we will have hopefully a more comprehensive system to allow primary residents the flexibility to share space. but from my perspective, i think it's very -- it's very important that we first take the step to ensure that our residential housing is protected and that there is proper enforcement against illegal short-term rentals and that is why we have this legislation in front of us. so with that, i first would like to recognize rosemary bosk and bill strong from the department of building inspection who have worked with our office and su

will simply say i love san francisco's architecture and i love that i live on a block where all of the houses are old, old sort of with the character and the graph tas that comes with an old building. 14 of 15 were built by 1911. that apparently is enough to place the house at 530 sanchez as a category b historic residence, but i don't know the details, i'm afraid, of what that actually means. however, i do know that i don't want to see a building that could be refurbished and turned sb a beautiful modern version of an old house needlessly demolished. and the proposed construction is two large modern boxy condos, flagrantly different in character than the classic san francisco arc tech taur that surrounds it so i ran around last night and took photos of all the buildings on our street, if we can bring that up just to give you a feel. that's one building, a bunch of victorians. the building on the bottom right is the proposed construction according to the permit holder's renderings. they aren't uniformly victorian, but they do have a uniform feel of old standing san francisco. not only doe
